Naftali Bennett, Likud & Jabotinsky
As a follower of Ze’ev Jabotinsky, many fine members of the Likud/ Yisrael Beytenu have to be dismayed at the ongoing attacks by Netanyahu & Likud against Naftali Bennett, the Chairman of the Jewish Home party, which is projected to be the third largest party in the upcoming Israeli elections.
Take for example, the words of the fine, ideological man, Energy and Water Minister Uzi Landau who has now rejoined the Likud as a result of the merger of his party Yisrael Beytenu, chaired by Avigdor Lieberman.
As Landau said: “I have been always a member of Herut and Likud, which derives its inspiration from [Ze’ev] Jabotinsky, [Menachem] Begin and [Yitzhak] Shamir. When I talk about the National Camp, I like to use the analogy of a single apartment building – moving from Likud to Yisrael Beytenu I merely moved within the same camp, or just a different apartment within the same building. With this joint list we are strengthening the building and strengthening the National Camp.”
